“You have no idea what war does to men.” Entertainment Studios has unveiled a new full-length trailer for Scott Cooper’s wild west thriller Hostiles, which will hit theaters in December at the end of the year. Set in New Mexico in 1892, the film follows a legendary Army captain who reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne war chief and his family through dangerous territory. Christian Bale stars as Captain Joseph J. Blocker, and Wes Studi stars as Yellow Hawk. It’s described as a “heroic odyssey of survival” that “becomes a story not about the miles traveled nor the battles fought, but the journey towards respect, reconciliation, and forgiveness.” The cast includes Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster, Peter Mullan, Jesse Plemons, Stephen Lang, Q’orianka Kilcher, Timothée Chalamet, and Rory Cochrane. This premiered to great reviews in Telluride, and looks like a solid, dusty action thriller. This trailer actually makes me want to see this film. ›››
Virtual reality company Oculus on Thursday released a trippy trailer for its first full-length film, and you won’t want to miss it.
The film, called Miyubi, takes the viewer through a series of strange events as you follow the life of a 1982 suburban family in America.
And you’re not just watching the movie passively. Oculus financed the movie and worked with production studios Felix and Paul Studios and Funny or Die, who set it up so that viewers are a part of the action.
Your character isn’t another human watching from the outside either — you’re a Japanese toy robot from the ’80s named Miyubi. Read more…
“What do you want?” “I just want to know that it’s, it’s really happening.” Sony has released a full-length trailer for the upcoming 40th anniversary theatrical re-release of Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The classic sci-fi film first hit theaters in December of 1977, two years after Jaws. This re-release was first teased with a “mysterious” air traffic control video that didn’t explain what exactly it was teasing, but that was quickly solved. Now we know the film is returning to theaters again September 1st and if you’ve never seen on it on the big screen before, now is your chance. Don’t miss it! Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Bob Balaban, François Truffaut, Warren Kemmerling, and Cary Guffey. This trailer definitely makes this movie seem like a true classic – feast your eyes on this. ›››
“What do you want from tennis?” “To be the best.” A full-length trailer has been unveiled for tennis match film Borg/McEnroe, profiling (and recreating) the iconic 1980 tennis match between Björn Borg and John McEnroe. The film seems to now be titled simply Borg, which is odd considering it seems to be about both players and not just Borg, but this trailer proves otherwise. Maybe the title is different in certain countries around the world? Shia LaBeouf plays John McEnroe, and Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason plays Björn Borg; also starring Stellan Skarsgård, Tuva Novotny, and David Bamber. This looks damn good, even better than expected. I’m impressed by the mix of English, French and Swedish in this trailer. Worth a look. ›››

“This weekend is about us! We deserve this.” Ugh, here we go again. Universal has released a second trailer for the summer comedy Girls Trip, opening in theaters this July. This wild comedy stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish as a group of friends who decide to take a “girls trip” together. This film also stars Larenz Tate, Mike Colter, Kofi Siriboe, Kate Walsh. The last two trailers for this did not look good, and honestly this one looks even worse. I highly recommend the other four-women-party-comedy movie Rough Night instead (see the latest trailer), if that’s the kind of comedy you’re looking for this summer. Because this seriously does not look funny at all. Not even worth watching. ›››

“If that prosecution goes through, that bank is going to go out of business.” PBS has released another new official trailer for the latest documentary from Hoop Dreams director Steve James, titled Abacus: Small Enough to Jail. This doc premiered at film festivals last fall and has been playing around the world at festivals ever since. Abacus tells the story of the Chinese immigrant Sung family, owners of Abacus Federal Savings of Chinatown, New York. They had to spend five years defending themselves and their bank’s legacy when they became the only U.S. bank to face criminal charges in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. We’ve been following this doc since last year, and it will open in NYC starting this May, with a nationwide roll-out over the summer. This does look like an “exemplary piece of filmmaking”, as is expected from Steve James. ›››
“You must live for something. And you must be willing to die for something.” Open Road Films has debuted another new trailer for the Tupac film All Eyez on Me, which makes this the fourth trailer for the film since they started debuting last year (see the first, second, third here). The film profiles the life of extremely successful American rapper Tupac “2Pac” Shakur, who has killed in a drive by shooting at the age of 25 in 1996. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the late great musician, also starring Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Annie Ilonzeh, Dominic L. Santana, Keith Robinson, plus Jamal Woolard as Biggie. This trailer actually gets more into his complete life story with some real scenes, and it still looks damn good. I’m so in. ›››
